Dayle Fredette - "the other informer" of Operation SharQc

SharQc's flagship informant was Sylvain Boulanger, who received $ 2.9 million and avoided any criminal charges in exchange for his confidences to the police. Dayle Fredette signed his contract of informer on February 8, 2012. His reward? $ 15,000 spread over the 25 years of incarceration he will have to serve, plus $ 50 a month to defray his canteen in prison. The government also agrees to pay his two children monthly financial assistance of $ 150 until they are 18 years old.

Like Boulanger, the "other informer" never had to testify in court, which finally ended in September 2016. At 15, Fredette was the pusher of his school. At 17, he lived in the den of a motorcycle club. At 28, after committing his first murder, he became a member of the Hells Angels.
In December 1992 Fredette was sent to the federal penitentiary Leclerc in Laval to serve a five-year sentence. Several Hells Angels were incarcerated there, including Michel "Jinx" Genest and Jacques "La Pelle" Pelletier, both convicted for their role in the Lennoxville Massacre. "Genest had brought me in and asked me what I wanted to do in life," Fredette told the SQ. I replied that I wanted to become a Hells Angel. He said, "OK, that's what I wanted to know." After that I became a henchman for Genest and Pelletier and I was a drug dealer for them. "

In 1994, the Hells Angels and the Rock Machine went to war. After his release in 1997, his friends who had risen in rank among the Hells Angels, made him the proposal that he had been waiting for. "There Jos asks me if I am ready to wage war with them. He explains to me that I have to kill Rock Machine. I told them I was ready. That I wanted to become a Hells Angel too."
Fredette became a capable and prolific hitman. His stock quickly fell when he refused to kill Mario Bergeron. That job was handled by others but it was Fredette who went to recover the patches of member in good standing Bergeron to burn them, as was stipulated by the regulations of the club during an internal purge.

Bergeron's body was said to have been buried in New Brunswick and has never been found.
